Stop parking sensors constantly beeping!

Postby James 33 » Sat Sep 03, 2016 7:44 pm

This has been driving me nuts since we got the car. Every time someone gets something out the boot or walks in front of the car they would go off until I press the P button.
Today though I discovered that if you go into the vehicle menu under park assist you can turn them off. I always thought this compleatly disabled them and I was at the point where I was ok with that but no now they only work when in reverse or in 1st gear. Go into neutral and no more beeping. So happy, it's like having a new car. :lol:

Awesome discovery, thanks for sharing.
I am still withing for mine K but was wondering is it possible they made so illogical operating mode for bumper sensors.

Awesome discovery, so the front ones only work whilst reversing too?

No fronts only work when in 1st gear from what I can tell. Only just discovered it today so not fully investigated yet but the rears definitely only work now when in reverse.

Hi

You must have a different version of software to me as under park assist I only get the option to enable or disabled and disabling it stops the sensors from working or am I missing something obvious.

Just tried it on mine (parking sensors only and not parking pack) and the option just seems to turn them off fully. Restart the car and the sensors are auto enabled again, bleeping like crazy. Is there a trick to setting the sensors like this? Car running or just Ignition on? :(

Mine only has the option to disable them but by doing so doesn't completely disable them. Mine only work when in forward or Reverse gears now not when the car goes bellow 7mph.
